As I said, finally finished!


I loved learning to knit.  But I am s.l.o.w.  Very slow.  I read these knitting blogs, and people have finished sweaters and socks just dropping from their needles every couple of days.  Not me.  Granted, I tend to knit in fits and starts, picking up and putting down projects for months at a time.  But still.

I just looked it up.  The Hemlock Ring Blanket pattern was published/shared in August, 2007.  And I loved it then.  It wasn’t too much later that I cast on one for myself.  Along the way I ripped it back most of the way twice, and as I said, put it down for periods of months.  But still, for a knitted project that everyone else seemed to churn out in a matter of days, a “quick knit,” it took me more than 3 years.

But I still love it.


  1. Beautiful!! Props for perseverance.

  2. Yeah, I think you get even more props points for practically starting over twice and still actually finishing.

    Now, don't let Gus spit up on it.
